Oscar Soto’s invention, La Mochila, is shrimp ceviche and fish aguachile with abalone, octopus and oysters in a shallow, acidic pool, pinned under avocado slices, red onion ribbons and a dusting of ground, copper-toned chile piquin. A specialty of El Doctor Del Valle food truck.

“I love food generally,” says Oscar Soto, “but I can tell you that I love food from Sinaloa and the place where I was born the best.” He and his wife, Adina, run the truck.
